Portable Offices: Design Details

FRAMEWORK: The structural members for the corners of portable offices are 3″ x 3″, 1/4″ and are made of aluminum. The structural members between panels are 4″ x 2 1/2″, 3/16″ aluminum “T” extrusions. The top frame is 2 1/2″ x 2 1/2″, 3/16″ aluminum angle. All aluminum structural members are 6063 alloy, T6 temper and anodized with a 202R1 clear finish.

PANELS: Wall panels are a minimum of 3/4″ thick sandwich construction. The exterior area of the panel is smooth, white painted aluminum that is laminated to a high density OSB board. Panel interior is 1/8″ gray vinyl covered hardboard. Panels will be caulked with a sealant (urethane) that is fastened to structural members with plated screws. Optional finishes and other colors are available if preferred.

CEILING: Ceiling panels are a minimum of 3/4″ thick sandwich construction. The interior area of the panel is 1/8″ white vinyl covered hardboard that is laminated to a high density OSB board. The top of the panel has an aluminum vapor barrier.

FLOOR/BASE: The building base is made of 4″ structural steel channels that are welded with stringers on 24″ (at the maximum) centers. The base includes forklift pockets. Steel channels are painted with a rust inhibitive paint. Subflooring comes in the form of two layers of 5/8″ OSB board with an aluminum vapor barrier that is laminated underneath it. All finished flooring is designed with commercial-grade seamless vinyl.

ROOF: On the buildings that are 4′ wide (or less), the roof will ship already installed on the building. An installed roof consists of a .045″ EPDM membrane that is laminated to the ceiling panels. Aluminum gutters are on all four sides. For buildings that are larger than 4′ wide, the roofs consist of corrugated V-shaped aluminum pans.

WINDOWS: Windows consist of double-sliding aluminum equipping with unique locking devices. All sliding sections are glazed with a 1/8″ clear tempered safety glass. All window framing is anodized aluminum with a 202R1 clear finish.
